Retro Run


The Silverstone Classic RetroRun is a road run for classic cars (pre-1997 or those of special interest) that takes place as an integrated part of the event. 

The RetroRun starts on the Saturday morning of the Silverstone Classic (29 July) from the magnificent nearby Stowe House, and participants can opt to take part in a 80-mile (Route B) or 110-mile route (Route A), carefully selected to provide a fantastic driving experience which takes in special places of interest along the route, before reaching its conclusion right in the very heart of the event on Saturday afternoon with an exclusive, dedicated area inside the Circuit for displaying all the RetroRun cars.

The following day, RetroRunners then have a unique opportunity to drive their cars around the iconic Grand Prix track in a revered Parade lap on the Sunday (30 July).

The RetroRun package for 2017 has SOLD OUT but to express your interest for 2018, please email: RetroRun@silverstoneclassic.com.
